She's Got The Wrong Guy By: Deepak Reju

Why do the nicest women pick guys who let them down for one reason or another? The answers are not always straightforward. For some women, the issue is as simple as not really thinking through what they re looking for or should be looking for in a man. Others feel they d rather be with someone (and pretty much anyone will do) than be alone, while still others are unconsciously replicating patterns of bad relationships they learned in childhood or from traumatic experiences and don t know how to stop the cycle. Deepak Reju, writing from his years of experience as a pastor and a counselor, shares with women his perspective on how to assess a relationship s strengths from the beginning, how to identity possible pitfalls, and how to have the courage to not just settle but to wait for a relationship that will be a blessing to both of you.

My Thoughts...

I was not impressed with this book at all. But then I am not the right audience for this book so that could have had something to do with it.
It is a book geared more toward single girls.
It is a self help book for those that don't know what they are looking for and tend to settle for the  bad guy.
So if you are single and looking for the right guy give this book a try.
I'm not at all sure that a book will help you with that but it has some good points in it to get you to think.
I gave this book 3 stars. It was just not my cup of tea.
 The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.


  1. Mary, never heard of this author. But this is not for me.

  2. This may help some young girls. I will share it.

  3. Interesting title sounds like a different type of book then I would read.

  4. Most girls don't need a book to tell them that they made a mistake in their choice of boyfriends when it all goes south. This is a book that I am not sure about.

  5. This goes back to what we were talking about on your facebook post before everyone started getting upset about self published books. Sometimes it's just not a book for you no matter who had a hand in it.

  6. I'm single but I don't need a book to tell me how to pick a guy. Thanks

  7. I know a lot of women like this. I am single but I think I know what I am looking for in a guy so I think I will pass on this one. Nice review Mary.

  8. Deepak has some great insight - and he's got a great way of explaining things! We were blessed to hear him at a Biblical Counseling Training Conference last month. Can't wait to get our hands on this book. :)

  9. My daughter should have read this book!!!

  10. I'm single, but I mostly read this because I wanted to understand why so many of my good Christian friends settle for the wrong kind of guy. The author brings it right back to the Cross which I appreciated. Great review Mary! :)
